If you're trying to restore the data only to an existing database, you
could use the "-a " option to restore data only, rather than the schema
definitions.

Subject: [NOVICE] Problme in my pg_dump command


Hi
 
Good morning.
 
I have taken a backup of the databse from the windows commandline with
the following command:
 
C:\[pg_dump loaction]\pg_dump.exe -h localhost -p 5432 -U postgres -F c
-v -f C:\db_backup.backup myDB;
 
This worked fine.
 
However I am facing the problem while restoring. I am trying with the
following command from the windows command line:
 
C:\[pg_restore location]\pg_restore.exe -i -h localhost -p 5432 -U
postgres -d myDB -v C:\db_backup.backup
 
If I give "-c", its working fine. However I don't want to drop the
database while restoring.
So is it possible to restore database without dropping database?
 
 
without "-c" I am getting the following error messages, and no data is
restored in database:
 
pg_restore: creating SCHEMA public
